I am the IT guy at QuickCircuit in New Zealand (NZ'a largest contract electronics manufacturing company), currently looking for a junior to assist me keeping the factories and production running smooth. It is a combination of IT, electronics and electrical.   The KPI is simple keeping the users and factory equipment running smoothly. 

We are a contract electronics manufacturing house with 4 sites in New Zealand, providing everything from basic PCB population through to full product management, ie taking a manufacturing order and drop shipping directly to the end users.   See www.quickcircuit.co.nz if you want more background.  
So you need to be generalist that is flexible to jump between assisting any aspect of the company with respect to IT.

There is a large hardware maintenance and user support focus, not a desk job by any means, a lot of time on your feet with a laptop in one hand.

I have posted a couple of ads via traditional channels with out much success.

Someone who is flexible and has a good head on their shoulders is what I am after.

I am being very general in my requirements, as trying to cast a wide net.
